The Online Speech Bank contains  active links to 5000+ full text, audio and video (streaming) versions of public speeches, sermons, legal proceedings, lectures, debates, interviews, other recorded media events, and a declaration or two. Links are arranged alphabetically by first name and checked for errors at least once every two weeks.
Rhetorical Figures in Sound contains 200+ brief audio (mp3) artifacts illustrating 37 different types of classical rhetorical devices. Artifacts are arranged alphabetically by first name. For each rhetorical device, a definition and written examples are provided (far left column) following Robert Harris', A Handbook of Rhetorical Devices. Each audio artifact constitutes a sample of a first or second generation recording of the original rhetorical performance. Performances include public speeches and sermons, lectures, oral interpretations of literature,and various media events. Some artifacts have been edited further to make the devices easier to detect. In the
interest of diversity, this page offers a range of voices (e.g., Foucault to Eisenhower) and perspectives.
